Description by

Newly released from a mental institution, arsonist Dennis Pitt (Anthony Perkins), seeks a new life for himself in a charming Massachusetts town. And when he meets Sue Ann Stepanek (Tuesday Weld), a beautiful all-American cheerleader, he decides to impress her by posing as a CIA agent. His false persona is seductive to Sue Ann, and in fact, her innocence begins to fade as she becomes more and more enthralled with Pitt's tales of violence. Ultimately, the cheerleader and the ex-convict become a duo capable of doing anything to get what they want - even murder - in this exciting psychological drama with exceptional acting and an explosive ending you won't want to miss!

Product Description:

Under-appreciated upon its release in 1968, PRETTY POISON, based on Stephen Geller's novel SHE LET HIM CONTINUE, is a black comedy thriller that uses the talents of its stars to the utmost effect. Kittenish seductress Tuesday Weld plays Sue Ann, an apple-pie high schooler who is lured from her regular life by recently released mental patient Dennis Pitt (PHYCHO's Anthony Perkins). He tells the girl he is a C.I.A. agent and invites her to join him, a fantasy which she is all too happy to buy, and they take off together in now-classic style, making sure to kill her mother first. The film maintains uncertainty about who is manipulating whom, with jet-black humor played to subtle perfection by the two excellent leads.
